is progressing and away the mature economic and economy as we have it pretty sound situation. well, if you compare what is happening in the u.s. in terms of the design of the framework of my economic policy, this is a totally different vision. in the u.s. you have the degree of flexibility. it's ready to intervene and to apply a very flex ability monetary policy, wearing europe the process is very cumbersome. it is a process in which the decision-making is extremely complex and we lack a proper lender for sovereign ends. this is the root of the problem today, that we have to apply fiscal policy, but we don't have a sufficiently policy. i would like certainly a lender of last resort. there is a situation for and stability in the sovereign that markets an example for that, in this chart you see the spread of the government that equally compare with germany and the spread is nearly 650 basis point. as you can all understand, it is impossible to work within a monetary union with such discrepancies between the core countries to finance themselves in european countries in this case, we have to p

's policies would hurt farmers. the governor talks about his five-point plan to fix the economy, something he says will help everyone from farmers to small businesses. >> i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and healthcare, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. america needs this new direction. we can't go on the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength and i will do it with your help. >> the obama campaign leveling a new attack at governor romney today over his plans to cut spending, specifically cut funding for pbs that would affect big bird. they have a new ad about it on today. >> bernie madoff, gut tons of greed and the evil genius to towered over him. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird, big bird, big bird. >> it's me big bird. >> big yellow, a men as to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: the republican national committee coming out with its own response, this graphic advertisement that quotes the count from ses

, how would you describe the jobs economy and right now? guest: this is the weakest recovery we have had since world war ii. the jobs numbers each month, we have averaged around 145,000 jobs created per month this year. that is barely enough to keep up with the growth of the working age population. and it has been a somewhat brazilian recovery in that there have been a lot of fears that we would go back into recession at various times and that has not happened. the overall economy has grown roughly 2% since the recession ended in june, 2009. that is a fairly weak growth rate, particularly after the death of the recession. by many measures, this is easily the worst since the great depression corporate -- the so the weak growth we've had since then has been difficult for the unemployed. we have a lot of long-term unemployed, that's been a record -- in the past it's at record levels. and we've talked about the crisis of long-term unemployment. hopefully it will pick up soon. host: let's take some calls from our guest and we want to hear about your job suation. caller: good morning. host: pl
. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's come too far to turn back now. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> you hear mitt romney pivoting talking about the real unemployment rate at 11%, so i -- i guess that's his pivot coming off the unemployment rate yesterday. randi, why does all this matter? as you mentioned off the top, the economy by far the number one issue with americans. take a look at this, from our cnn/orc international poll. we did it about a week ago before the first debate but i don't think it will change people's perceptions. by far the economy remains the top issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candida
this speech is about. that's the big choice that the american people have on the economy. you've got these crippling deficits, anemic jobs. you've got romney's plan to reverse that. on foreign affairs, you've got a failed foreign policy. yes, they've done more drone attacks, which is good. yes, osama bin laden is dead, which is good. but whether you deal with russia, china or throughout the broader middle east, you have a disaster. we saw that in the killing of the american ambassador in benghazi and a fundamental misunderstanding. >> i want to get to some other issues. i want to get to larger question, which is what is a romney foreign policy? what is going to be different about it than president bush's? less sort of the quote unquote freedom agenda? >> what you're going to have is a foreign policy that's been in the bipartson tradition of strength from kennedy and beyond. one that believes you need a strong economy. you need to have leadership. america's better off and the world is better off when america leads as "the washington post" editorial said today. there's a vacuum in syri

that used to be. bill: republican nominee continues to press on this issue, that's the economy. >> can we afford four more years like the last four years? he wants another stimulus. how did that first one work out? and then, he wants to pick winners and losers among companies, or losers in his case and then, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though th

it because it takes the attention off the debate and puts the attention on a recovering economy. >> questions raised by prominent romney backer ge executive jack welch put the challenger in a tough spot. >> if he agrees with it, where's the evidence? and if he disagrees with it, once of his principle supporters is problematic. >> set to release one more job's report four days before the november election. ktvu channel 2 news. >> more details now. the rate dropped from 8.1% because the number of people who got jobs soared. biggest monthly jump since 2003. 86,000 more jobs were added in july and august. >>> tonight at 10:30 what we found when we asked people about the economy and whether they've seen an improvement. >> on wall street the new jobs report did little to move the stock numbers. the debt crisis in europe or spain or greece are facing challenges continued to loom over investigators today. the dow was up 34 points. >>> filed plans for a $100 million initial public offering. the wireless network equipment maker has not said how many shares it plans to sell. the company's revenue nearly
the american economy and essentially saved it by kicking out all of these good-for-nothing ceos and making companies, once again, economically efficient and productive. these folks think they're heroes and they saved america. and the public thinks they are villains and their whole job is to enrich themselves and destroy jobs. >> narrator: the aftermath of some of the leveraged buyout deals was devastating: bankruptcies, factory closures, employees laid off. >> bain capital was never set up to be a job creation program. it was set up to make wealthy investors even wealthier. they didn't sit around the table talking about how many jobs this would create. oftentimes it was the opposite, how many jobs could be cut to make the company more efficient. >> mitt is a person who wants to be successful. making money is how you're measured in the private equity and venture capital business, but you're making money for your investors first and foremost, and that was always mitt's focus was to make money for them. >> narrator: the way those closest to him tell it, he had come to see himself as a white k
organized. >> rose: mexico's economy is doing how well now or how bad? >> well, doing well. i received today the report of july and again the economic growth was bigger than expected. 4.7 for july. >> rose: we'd take that here. >> that's good. let me tell you, we suffered a lot in the economic recession, 2009. >> rose: right. >> however, mexican economy expanded almost 16% since the second semester of 2009. so we had like 13 quarters in a row growing and generating like 700,000 new jobs in the formal sector which is very good for mexico. and i think that finally the economy is becoming very, very competitive. let me give you a couple of examples. when i took office six years ago mexico was the 9th largest exporter of vehicles in the world. and today we are the fourth largest exporter of vehicles in the world. so we are, for instance, the first exporter of flat screen and it's becoming a very, very good economy. and it's not only that we are very close to the united states which is clearly an advantage, but also we are investing a lot of infrastructure and in a very important thing, charlie,
's still the world's biggest economy. and if companies just are going to sit on cash, they're going to lose. they're gonna lose, because only the people that are going to invest their way through this crisis are going to win. >> immelt is also supporting a tax holiday for global companies to get them to bring back home more than $1 trillion in profits they're keeping overseas. he says businesses would start hiring, even though they didn't when a tax holiday was tried in 2004. >> when it happened last time, it didn't. >> right. >> so there's plenty of evidence that says that i'm not right about that. in other words, do i know how many jobs it's going to create? i don't. but it can't intellectually be any good to anybody to have $1.2 trillion outside the u.s. >> shouldn't american corporations--don't they have some kind of civic responsibility to create jobs? no? >> my name is not above the door. i work for investors. investors want to see us grow earnings and cash flow. they want to see us be competitive. they want to see us prosper. >> he wishes the public felt the same. >> i want you to ro
. >> big bird. >> big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. megyn: republicans taking note, a new page at the rnc web site has the count, you know, count dracula? tracking the obama campaign and pointing out that the president has mentioned big bird eight times and elmo five times at recent events. you know how he counts. there has been zero talk of libya plans to fix the economy according to the count. now apparently the folks at sesame street have had about enough of this. can you blame them? >>> well, powerful testimony today before the sentencing of former penn state assistant football coach jerry sandusky. victims emotionally recounting the horror of his abuse to a judge. sandusky, in the end, was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison for sexually abusing several young boys over more than a decade. keep in mind, he's 68 years old. david lee miller is live in pennsylvania. david? >> reporter: megyn, worth noting here is that there was no visible emotion from jerry sandusk

their own economies and national capacity and military. vietnam and malaysia have internal wars of rebellion and nation-building. the philippines had a rebellion in the 1950s. japan was just coming on line as a significant power in the 1970s and it was korea that developed into a significant power. all these countries have developed already and because they have developed they now have the ability to project power halt word into the. territorial soil they claim. they didn't have this capacity. we see conflict about island and geographical features below water and high tides that we never saw before. people say has everyone gone crazy? no. everyone has developed in east asia and they have military's and developed navies and air forces and conflicting conflict over geographical space. of battles over geographical space and not about ideas. there are no ideas involved. this is all about territory. this is about status, about national status. people fought in europe that nationalism was out of fashion. we are in a post national age. that is not what i see in east asia. i see nationalism as very
republicans who admire what he did -- >> because he did the economy. >> what he did with the economy. so i think this particular clinton card is being played very judiciously by the campaign. they're going to put him out there even more so. i think it's smart. >> now, if you were romney, would you do the same thing with george w.? would you bring him into the big swing states and have giant rallies with you and george w.? would you do that. i'm just teasing. >> i don't see george bush as an anathema. >> would you bring him out for the big rallies in columbus. >> the president probably doesn't want to participate in this campaign. but there are some spots in town he could probably help. >> how would you like w. out there campaigning for the other guy. >> i strongly recommend to romney that he campaign everywhere with george w. bush. if you look at all the data, people still blame by a margin of two to one the economic problems in this country on bush. so i think -- and the other thing, by the way, it would open up for the president is the very clear case that if you didn't like the bush/che
sure i help the american farmer and i help the economy and get america work again. >> to that end today, mr. romney again said that he would eliminate the estate tax, the so-called death tax and went further as he has on occasion during this campaign to say that he would eliminate capital gains and interest in dividends taxes on the middle class. all in an attempt to spur the economy. shep. >> shep: carl, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million people have been contacted here in ohio alone. 4 1/2 million. that's more than a third of the overall population. the polls have ticked up. romney has closed the gap, leading in some of the national polls, within the mar i didn't know of error, and in most of the battle ground states, he's either closed the gap and in a couple of cases, gone up by a point or two. these are swings in the polls. he's eliminated any bounce the

of the 20th century, which the uranium boom had caused severe impacts to the economy, our health, and of course the environment. as indigenous peoples who live on the land and have all of our ways and traditions based within our sacred mountains, this is going to have a lasting impact not just to our culture and our health, but to future generations. >> explain how it is the uranium mines come into the navajo lands come into the reservations. >> back in the 1940's, there were no laws regulating the process, so several companies set up temporary llc's to extract uranium. as soon as they were done, when the profit was made, a drop in the uranium price in the 1980's led to hundreds of abandoned uranium mines all over the country and navajo lands. what happens was back then, the companies targeted areas where there was uranium and did whatever they could to access it, whether it was signing leases with communities or with individuals. in our area, we're dealing specifically with individuals. the navajo nation is divided into five regions. eastern navajo has a lot of what we call the
